Final Short Bio

THANK YOU to all that gave me advice on my bio either here or in email.

I wish I had enough space to include all of your suggestions, but if anything, it is STILL too long.  Oh well.  This is the version I think they are going to use along with the one, decent, "professional" picture I kind of like (from way back in Scient days... which actually isn't all THAT way back).  My smile is probably just a hair too wide, but you have to remember, I had already "sipped the corporate kool-aid."

I miss those days.

Since I'm becoming quite the shameless self-promoter, I asked, if they had room, to please include ""... which, of course, would eliminate all of my "credibility" if someone actually came here. (sigh)

The contest is sponsored by 3M, AMD, and the Austin American Statesman, and I'm on a panel of 6 final judges.

The topic is:

What recent advance in technology do you feel holds the most promise for enhancing quality of life for people around the world and how would you propose channeling this advance to avoid unintended consequences? (examples might be genetic engineering of food, artificial intelligence, faster, better computers, ubiquitous communications, stem cell research, advances in AIDS / cancer research, mapping of the human genome, etc.)

It'll be narrowed down to 30 entries by the time I get to it in April... Yea!
